Following the Phoenix Suns’ 101-97 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday, embattled Suns coach Jeff Hornacek criticized Cavs guard Matthew Dellavedova for provoking officials into calling an offensive foul on Tyson Chandler late in the game.

Only there was one major problem with Hornacek’s criticism: Dellavedova was on the bench during the play, in which Chandler was called for setting an illegal screen on Iman Shumpert. The foul nullified a 3-pointer by Brandon Knight that would have turned Phoenix’s one-point deficit into a two-point lead with 46 seconds remaining.
